- Jul 11, 2007Dear Steve,
I do not know personally that such a map does exist. However,
when you take into consideration that the Confederate battle
lines had really only changed a few hundred yards from what they
were the morning of September 17th.... perhaps there is your
You might want to pursue the Library of Congress map collection
for maps of Antietam and see if you find any maps delineating the
rough lines of the Army of Northern Virginia as of September
18th. However, do not expect (IIRC and IMHO) to find any detailed
maps of unit placements etc.
I sincerely hope this helps............

Subject: [TalkAntietam] Battlefield map for 9/18?
I'm new to the forum and am trying to locate a detailed
battlefield map for the morning after
the battle, on 9/18 -- something that would serve as a visual aid
for studying details of the
entire field (thin Confederate defense of Nicodemus Heights,
truce sectors, Humphreys'
support of the Ninth Corps, etc.). A rep from the Visitor's
Center feels that such a thing
doesn't exist; if this is the case, would the next best thing be
the 5:30 p.m. 9/17 Carman-
Cope map? Many thanks in advance!
